Christen & Micah are friends with former wedding planning clients of mine, the grooms both having attended Bowdoin College together. They wanted an elegant, downtown Portland, Maine -New Year’s weekend celebration. Working closely with Christen we created a design with accents of natural elements, lots of evergreens and candles. Christen and her friend made her pine cone bouquet themselves! Photos by Sarah Morrill Photography.
Starting in NYC and moving to California during the planning, Christen and Micah were very responsive even through their move, we wish every couple could be that way, it makes the planning so much more efficient! Christen and Micah both had the perspective of creating a thoughtful and fun celebration to fully be in the presence of their friends and families. Their fathers performed as officiants for their ceremony. Their dog was a part of the ceremony, and we may have the most children under 10 years of age as any wedding of the hundreds we have done, it was a lively group! Our former clients, Bonnie and Mox, were guests of the wedding and we had fun catching up with a loved client couple from 2011 during the evening. (See the also lovely wedding of Bonnie & Mox that was featured on Style Me Pretty!)
Bread & Butter Catering put out an incredible cocktail hour spread, followed by a scrumptious dinner and ice cream sundae bar for dessert to go with cookies from the couple’s favorite NYC bakery, Levain Bakery. Late night snacks were grilled cheese sandwiches and sliders, to keep everyone’s energy up for the evening of dancing to a great performance by Gina & The Red Eye Flight Crew Band.
Happy marriage Christen & Micah!
